Hello Brighton and Hove Web designers – I received this email which might interest you. I’m copying and pasting direct. If you’re interested, contact the person outlined below.
Don’t email me about the job as I’m not involved in the hiring process at all, just thought I’d spread the word!
Expression of Interest
QueenSpark is the UK’s longest-running community publisher; since 1972 we have published 96 books about the people, communities and history of Brighton & Hove, and we host a number of local literature and historical websites.
We are now looking for an individual or company to create and build a website that will facilitate and showcase the forthcoming Brighton & Hove Photographic Collection, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The website will
” be a repository for historic and contemporary photographs of Brighton & Hove
” co-ordinate and integrate current historic collections of local photographs into one online Archive portal, and link to other archive and photo-sharing sites
” incorporate cataloguing information including historical, contextual and rights data according to internationally recognised metadata standards
” facilitate the uploading of contemporary photographs
” possess an easy-to-navigate browsing and search system
” be complementary to – although not data-integrated with – a forthcoming redesign and repositioning of QueenSpark’s entire web presence, following discussion with QueenSpark’s Project Co-ordinator and Steering Group
” Offer photographs for free for use by non-commercial individuals and organisations, whilst making them available commercially to outside media and other for-profit organisations
” be suitable for ongoing volunteer management of content once the project has finished (July 2011 onwards) – which should be facilitated by the creation of a simple ‘how to’ user manual
Expressions of Interest are invited by 10am, Friday 11th June, and should include all consultation, design, development, testing and launch costs associated with the project.
